ludicrously awesome [w]rapper for nvidia-docker


* Free software: MIT license
* Documentation: [coming shortly]

```
pip install git+https://github.com/ryanolson/luda.git
```

Note: On a Mac, you will need to install this somewhere else besides
`/usr/local/` because of Docker's restrictions on touching the host OS.

```
cd Projects
git clone https://github.com/ryanolson/luda.git
cd luda
pip install -e .
```


## Features

* Opinionated wrapper for `docker`/`nvidia-docker` designed to provide
Singularity-like functionality to Docker images.

* Best used for container images that run DL/HPC-like jobs, not suited
for long-running daemons or services that require root.

* Volume mounts a /bootstrap volume and overrides the container image
`ENTRYPOINT` to map the host USER, UID and GID [future work] into the
container. Use `--cmd` to see the `docker` commandline that `luda` run
echoed to the terminal.

* Automounts the current working directory on the host to `/work` inside
the container. `/work` becomes the current working directory inside the
running container. `--work` can be used to specify an alternative default
working directory for use inside the container; it will be mounted to `/work`.

* Automounts `$HOME` on the host to `/home/$USER` inside the container with the
`--home` option.k


## Acknowledgements

Thanks to [Deni Bertovic's
blog](https://denibertovic.com/posts/handling-permissions-with-docker-volumes/).
`luda` provides very similar functionality but does not require specially
crafted base images and wraps the details of the docker command-line.
